App Downloads to Beat iTunes Downloads by Christmas

Predictions reveal that the number of app downloads in the app store could take over the total number of iTunes downloads before the end of the year.

The information and chart was generated by Asymco that analysed the date to create the graph seen above.

According to the firm’s research, iTunes download rates for music and iOS apps are both still growing, but accelerating much faster for the latter. In fact, Asymco posits, based on data from the recently updated Music and App Store, that the total number of app downloads has already reached the same level as that of songs in less than half the time.

Another graph was posted, available at TechCrunch, that shows the rate of iTunes downloads decelerating and the rate of app downloads accelerating.
